“Marine Biotechnology Holds Enormous Potential for Novel Products & Processes”
marinebiotechsmithersrapra2

“A new report from Smithers Rapra, The Future of Marine Biotechnology to 2025, examines the rising interest in marine biotechnology, the result of recent scientific advances that have increased knowledge of marine biodiversity and allowed the development of technology and tools to access and study marine organisms and ecosystems.

This has resulted in the recent launch of industrially relevant products to the market, creating the expectation of significant rewards in the near timescale. However, although marine bioresources hold enormous potential as a source of novel products and processes they still remain largely unexploited.

Marine biotechnology is an innovative field of research in science and engineering that encompasses the use of marine bioresources for a multitude of applications, including the production of food, fuel, materials or specific, often bioactive, compounds and may contribute to green growth and sustainable industries and prosperous communities.

Marine biotechnological advancements have already resulted in some successes in diverse fields, including human health, pharmacology, fisheries, environmental recovery or restoration, food and cosmetics industries, agriculture and chemistry. Examples of applications resulting from biotechnological developments include the use of (micro- and macro-) algae for the production of biofuels and the production of marine-derived polysaccharides, which are one of the most abundant renewable biomaterials found on land and in the oceans.

According to the report, the marine biotechnology market is still in its infancy and the boundaries for its quantification are indistinct since some of the marine biotechnology applications involve the use of non-marine bioresources. Subject to these parameters, the global market of marine biotechnology is estimated at $4.1 billion in 2015 and has the potential to reach $4.8 billion by 2020 and $6.4 billion by 2025.
The key drivers for the market are new applications of marine-derived enzymes in the cosmetics industry and use of marine algae and micro algae in biofuel production.(…)”

« Le refus des signes du vieillissement a entraîné l’augmentation spectaculaire du nombre de produits de comblement permettant le traitement, non plus seulement des signes de vieillissement cutané, mais aussi des modifications morphologiques.

Ces « fillers » classiques ou volumateurs, biodégradables, essentiellement à base d’acide hyaluronique, sont adaptés à toutes les localisations. Ils offrent la possibilité de traiter l’ensemble des altérations cutanées superficielles ou profondes et de restaurer les fontes graisseuses.

Les résultats sont (très) satisfaisants à condition toutefois d’avoir respecté les indications de traitement (choix du produit et site), d’avoir pratiqué préalablement au traitement un interrogatoire médical et un examen clinique approfondis et d’avoir remis aux patients les recommandations à observer avant et après traitement.

Les effets secondaires sont alors très rares et transitoires. »

« Epigenetics and Aging: A New Player in Skin Care »- Cosmetics and Toiletries

 » The cosmetics and skin care industry is constantly developing new products and technologies that aim to slow down the skin aging process. Epigenetic processes play an important role in skin aging. Several new cosmetic products target epigenetic mechanisms and have shown promising results as novel cosmeceuticals.

Epigenetics describes the physiological reprogramming that occurs in the cell without changes in the DNA sequence. The main epigenetic tools used by the cell are:

  • DNA methylation
  • histone modifications
  • histone variants
  • chromatin remodeling nanomachines, and
  • the regulatory activity of microRNAs (miRNAs).

The combinative use of these tools regulates the accessibility of the DNA to outside factors in the nucleus, which affects vital cellular processes including transcription and DNA repair. Although the study of epigenetics in clinical medicine is relatively new, the applications to dermatology are profound—with mechanisms and future therapeutic modalities being examined in melanoma, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, psoriasis and aging. The cosmetic industry has taken serious interest and begun to develop new anti-aging products that target epigenetic processes. (…) »

ID bio Confirm Efficacy of its Anti-pollution Active ‘Cell’intact®’ to Combat Aging

« ID bio has unveiled new tests carried out on its latest active ingredient extracted from organic buckwheat seeds, Cell’intact®. These complementary studies answer the consumers’ request to fight against urban pollution and cutaneous aggressions linked.

Anti-pollution Active - Cell’intact®

Nowadays, skin faces a growing and worrying phenomenon; more and more cities are concerned by pollution peaks due to the gradual increase of people living in urban areas and to the development of manufacturing companies.

The skin is constantly exposed, additionally to sun rays, to various pollutants and particulate matter (PM) that increase cutaneous inflammation and contribute to accelerate cutaneous aging.In light of this alarming observation, ID bio has decided to carry out new studies on its latest active ingredient Cell’intact® (INCI : Aqua (and) Polygonum Fagopyrum Seed Extract).

An ex vivo evaluation has been realized on skin explants to prove its effectiveness in presence of a pollutant (benzo[a]pyrene).

The ingredient enables to:

• reduce the proinflammatory answer by acting on interleukin-8 (IL-8), a marker protein that overreacts in case of pollution and leads to cutaneous discomfort Cell’intact at 3 % enables to reduce by 26,2 % the IL-8 release against polluted control
>> The skin is less reactive and cells are « zen », relaxed

• rebuild and reinforce the architectural epidermis network via the protection of tight junctions’ proteins (Claudins-1 and -4) to avoid premature aging
>> Skin is more resistant to aggressions (exhaust gases, industrial smokes, tobacco, etc) and aging signs are kept away

Those results show the large scope of intervention of the active ingredient that creates a complete and natural shield against pollution and environmental attacks. A preventive and restorative action ideal in protective cares for face and body. ID Bio will present new results on Cell’intact® during an Innovation Seminar on November 3rd at 17:15 at in-cosmetics Asia in Bangkok (November 3rd to 5th), Booth D27. »

Scientific Workshop Gives Update on Metabolomics Progress in Beauty

« Scientists at Osaka University Japan and Thai University have held a workshop on the latest cutting edge metabolomics which give insight into the skin’s biology and advances R&D across industries like cosmetics.

Scientific-workshop-gives-update-on-metabolomics-progress-in-beauty_strict_xxl

The workshop follows 40 years of collaboration between the two Universities in the area of microbiological and biotechnological research.

Held in Bangkok in partnership with Japanese manufacturer, Shimadzu, the scientists spoke about their work to develop innovative technologies and applications from metabolomics for various sectors including personal care.

Shimadzu linked up with Osaka University’s Fukusaki laboratory in 2011 and has been developing and manufacturing analysis equipment for the latest biotechnology research.

Particularly beneficial in the development of sun care and anti-ageing products

Regarding personal care, metabolomics can provide insights into skin structure and processes and the mechanisms by which new applications can improve skin health.

For example, cellular damage and ageing have been associated with changes in amino acid, lipid, and energy metabolites across multiple skin layers.

Understanding these changes can be extremely useful in the development and validation of sun care and anti-ageing products, as well as treatments for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.

Working with metabolomics for these kind of products can include reducing the development time and improving product efficacy by elucidating metabolic targets of various skin conditions as well as advancing R&D pipelines in therapeutic areas such as acne, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.

Dermo-cosmetics

Dermo-cosmetics are recommended for specific skin care needs and the market represents 4.4 % of the global beauty market, valued at about € 7.6 billion.

The segment is in a strong position, outpacing the global beauty market, and with 1 in 4 skin care products sales in the West taking place in pharmacies or health and beauty shops.

Whereas the global beauty market increased by 3.8 % in 2013, the dermo-cosmetics sector experienced a 4.8% growth rate, led by a vital Western Europe market and accelerated development in new markets such as China and Latin America. »
